" Your humble Natural Magick potioneer also has serious creds as a Party Girl! Where else are you going to find magickal priciples applied to the party imperative? This incense is designed to bring out the extrovert in you and all those you might mingle with.
This incense began at the request of a fire dancer friend of mine, who wanted a fiery accompaniment for her performances. It was further refined when a musician pal asked for something to burn when his band was onstage. He wanted people to dance and feel free to get a little rowdy at his gigs. He also wanted it to make a lot of smoke, to catch the stage lights, and probably to cover up what his fans might have been smoking. He was pleased with the results and I hope you will be too! The "smokey" ingredient is Damiana, so while it looks smokey, it is very pleasant and not offensive. Damiana is also frequently used in aphrodisiac and inebriant smoking blends (like my Wizard Vision smoking blend) so it serves to promote flirting and extroversion. Enjoy it at your next party, or you might try it on a regular basis to overcome shyness or low self esteem. It is made only on Friday or Saturday nights during a party.
Natural Magick incenses are composed of high quality resins, herbs, and sometimes essential oils. They are ritually hand ground on appropriate days of the week for Planetary influences and on the best day of the Moon's cycle for Lunar powers. Unlike most powder incenses, I use no "base" or filler to alter or dilute the powers of the active ingredients.
These magick incenses are made to be burned on incense charcoals. Light the charcoal with match or lighter, set it in a flameproof incense burner or on a brick, rock or bowl of sand, pebbles, or salt. Allow the charcoal to light completely and then sprinkle on a pinch the incense. Add more pinches as desired. See below for more detailed instructions.

How to burn incense & resins:
Natural Magick Shop incenses are ground in a mortar from resins, woods, herbs and spices. They have nothing in them which burns on its own, hence the need for a self-burning charcoal.
First you need something safe to burn your incense in. The charcoals used to burn resins get very hot. Use a burner made for resin incense, with a metal screen, a cast iron cauldron, or you can use a glass or ceramic bowl IF you put a layer of sand, marbles, aquarium pebbles or rocks to insulate glass or ceramic from the heat of the charcoal.
I often break the charcoals in half because they burn for nearly an hour. Light the charcoal with a lighter or match, and when it starts to spark, put it in the burner.
It is best to let the whole charcoal begin to glow before adding any incense. Then sprinkle on the incense as desired, a little bit at a time. If you add too much or cover the charcoal completely, you might put out the charcoal. Also, most natural resin incenses smell better when burned in small amounts at a time.
Keep away from kids and pets. Let the charcoal burn down completely, and make sure it's all ash before throwing out because it could set trash on fire. Advice from experience!
I don't clean the burner after every use. When there is a collection of ash in the burner, pour contents into strainer over the sink and rinse with water. Let dry, and put rocks back in burner. (If you use sand you'll just have to dump the whole mess and use fresh sand).
Store unused charcoal in a zip-lock bag or in a jar, because they won't burn well if they collect humidity from the air.
